Cocoa Beach Main Celebrates Summer in Style
Musical genres, artistic expression and boutique fashion
New retailers have joined the downtown shopping scene and ladies will have options for strolling and après sun.
On a bit of a nostalgic note the historic Bernard Surf is scheduled for demolition the week of August 2nd. “It’s difficult to preserve mid-century buildings that have been in serious decline or deteriorated”, says Beth Javens, Executive Director, Cocoa Beach Main Street. She adds, “Reinvestment continues, however, with major improvement projects to parking and additional amenities for residents and visitors to downtown Cocoa Beach. Expect to see expanded choices for shopping and dining”.
